Whether a person's browser will show a PDF embedded within a page depends on their browser and plug-in settings. In my experience, the majority of people have it set so that PDFs launch Adobe Reader as a separate application, rather than as a plug-in within the browser, meaning that you can't achieve what you're after for those people.

Well... While Stevie D is correct here, you COULD run some PDF libs to convert to jpegs on the fly

If the browser supports displaying PDFs in the browser then the following is the simplest solution:
<div><img src="something.pdf" alt="unfortunately your browser doesn't display PDF's"></div>

Again it needs pdf plug-in.
is there any third party tool to show pdf on the site like we see on other sites like scribd.

A PDF is never the original source - if you want to display in the web page without needing a PDF prugin then it is best to convert the original source into a different web supported format.
